Global Soil Week 2015 – The call for proposals has now closed. Many thanks to all contributors. Stay tuned for more information.
The processes in the year 2015 offer several windows of opportunities to put soil and land on the international political agenda as a key to sustainable development. The Global Soil Week would like to make good use of these opportunities. The demands for the finite resource of soil are many and the stakes are high. Soils are fundamental in the provisioning of water, energy and food security for the 9 billion citizens expected to inhabit the planet in the year 2050, and thus to maintain and enable thriving societies now and in the future.
